Biography

Born and raised in Port Arthur, Texas, a small Southern petroleum industry town, she gravitated to artistic interests cultivated by parents Seth and Dorothy Joplin. Janis broke with local social traditions during the tense days of racial integration, standing up for the rights of African Americans whose segregated status in her hometown seared her youthful ideals.

Any lonely soul who may have stumbled upon this eulogy is
probably already a fan so I won't waste time with biographical
detail and cut to the chase. Janis Joplin was a Force of Nature;
no ifs, no buts! One of the most extraordinary voices ever to
have graced the listening world. It is a unique instrument!

This album is a treasure. Whether or not you already own the
studio albums it is worth forking out for this wonderful
Sony "Limited Edition" 2 CD release. What you get for your
money is Ms Joplin's first solo album (after splitting with
Big Brother and the Holding Company) "I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic
Blues Again Mama" (1969) and the whole of her live appearance
at the Woodstock festival on the 19th of August 1969.

The Woodstock performance is earth shattering. The voice
roars out of her guts and straight into ours! It blisters
and burns with raw elemental energy. Her delivery of 'Try
(Just A Little Bit Harder)' bristles with electricty. When
she hits those big top notes there is nowhere to hide. They
come at you like guided missiles, striking unerringly in the
centre of your forehead and making your whole spinal column
and nervous system vibrate with raw unbridled pleasure!

Her take on 'Piece Of My Heart' makes every hair (on my
considerably hairy body) stand to attention and her phenomenal
interpretation of 'Summertime' vibrates with white-hot emotion.

The incomparable Ms Joplin never gave less than her all.

One year later she was dead.

Historic. Incomparable. Essential.

There has been some mixed revues about this and some of the other Woodstock sets but I must say that I did really enjoy this from Janis, with worts an all!
I guess most people will be buying this mainly for the live Woodstock disc. I do not think it disapoints. Sure, this may not be her best but it is an honest, soul bearing, gutsy performance and slots nicely amonst those other famous Woodstock performances by so many other artists that, I think, seem to ooze something a little bit special, whether it's something to do with the occasion, the equipment used, the sound engineers or something in the water at the time.
The accompanying studio album may not be the best of her studio albums but you can sense the transition of where she is at and it gives you an indication of what she was like at the time of the Woodstock Festival.
There is some great playing by some great musicians on both discs, packaged rather nicely and a worth while addition to any collection.
It would be nice if there were some more additional Woodstock releases, to the five or six that already exist, to build up a bigger collection of that momentous occasion.

I bought this because Woodstock and Joplin were my youth. I didn't remember them well. I suppose you get a little of the atmosphere of Woodstock from this, but Janice is hoarse and rather shouty. Not a great musical experience.

Janis is *ELECTRIC* At Woodstock! 3 July 2009
By Alex Honda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Janis Joplin had to have been the hardest working woman in show business. You can hear it in her voice as it rips your soul apart! Of course she's no Teena Marie or Barbra Streisand as far as range is concerned, but Joplin had that one-of-kind voice that was brutally honest. On every song she sang, her soul spoke to the listener's.

This two-CD set of JANIS JOPLIN: THE WOODSTOCK EXPERIENCE is a prime example of this force of nature. The "live" Woodstock CD is worth the price of this set alone and runs 58:16 almost a full hour of concert material. The other CD is I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again, Mama without the extra tracks (but those are included on the Woodstock CD with the exception "Dear Landlord").

The live Woodstock CD captures the frenzy that was in Joplin's performance as she rips through the sets like "Raise Your Hand," "Piece Of My Heart," and "Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)" where she screams and shouts like a possessed woman trying to drive the evil spirits away. She almost becomes delirious, ad-libbing here and there, but you get chills listening to her wail away on these songs that you can't help but cheer her on!

Joplin also slow things down a little (sort of) with "Kozmic Blues," "To Love Somebody," "Work Me, Lord," (which can be seen on Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music Director's Cut (40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition with Amazon Exclusive Bonus Disc)), "Ball And Chain," and takes Gershwin's "Summertime" to a whole new level. Even though these are ballads, Joplin's voice oozes with soul, rage, pain and rock.

I like the engagement with the audience as Janice talks to them between songs and sometimes during the song itself. Incredible performance! And the announcer asking the crowd "Do you want some more?" and they scream out their approval. At the end of her set you can hear the audience screaming for more! It really allows you to experience the concert.

The set comes with the two CDs in cardboard replica album jackets with sleeves and housed in a larger cardboard package. There's liner notes on the sleeves for both CDs and comes with a mini-poster of Janis performing on one-side and the audience on the other.

"I Got Dem 'Ol Kozmic Blues Again, Mama" is the other CD in this set and it contains the studio recording of that album. Although the material is far more polished and controlled than the live CD, it still rocks with energy and feeling.

Get this set to find out what the hype surrounding Janis Joplin was all about.

this is going to be an interesting one... 8 Aug. 2009
By Mr. Philip Licis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
first of all, this is a GREAT show and if you are a janis fan, it's a must. however, i have one HUGE disappointment w/ it that i'll explain in a moment. so, let's start off w/, that by all accounts, this show is reputedly her worst ever. well, many years ago, through amazon, i got an "import" of this show. and it sounded HORRIBLE. i didn't know if it was because the show was that bad or that the sound quality made it so bad. so, i get this new disc, and w/in about 2 seconds i was VERY relieved to hear how WONDERFUL it sounds and that the show is just TERRIFIC, even if it was her worst show. yes, her voice is strained, yes the inbetween song talking is drugged rambling, but is't a GREAT show.
now, for the HUGE disappointment, which most of you will probably not appreciate. so, on the "import" verson, the peak of the show, and i mean THE PEAK, is "I can't turn you loose." it's an AMAZING piece of funk that would give me goose bumps EVERYTIME i heard it. so, I'm SOOOOOOOOO excited to get this new disc, if only for this one song. so, i'm listening to it, grooving away, and all of a sudden, IT ENDS! on the "import," it's nearly TEN MINUTES of grooving, w/ her and snookey going back and forth w/ each other, w/ the highlite being JANIS' part...WHY ON EARTH, ON A JANIS JOPLIN DISC, WOULD THEY TAKE OUT JANIS' PART??? well, i came CRASHING down and hold a resentment against the disc!!! oh well, at least i still have the "import." so, i don't know how, but if you guys can somehow come across the full length version, you'll know what i mean...

The Late and Great Janis Joplin 4 Aug. 2009
By David Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Janis Joplin was very unhappy with her performance at Woodstock. So much so, that she refused to have her performance included in the movie of the festival that was released the following year. SHe actually starts the set out very strong with a spirited Raise Your Hand. The next song, As Good As You've Been To This World, showcases the band, which plays very well here. Janis' vocal is much more impassioned than on the studio version of the song from her first solo album, "I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again, Mama!" It has been said that this band, which was formed after she left Big Brother & The Holding Company, never gelled completely, but they did improve markedly after Sam Andrew left the group in August 1969, a few weeks before Woodstock.
It appears that Janis was striving for a sound similiar to Sly And The Family Stone, but her musicians were not on that level. Janis' cover of the Bee Gees, "To Love Somebody" gets a better treatment than the studio version, and she gives near definitive versions of "Summertime," "Try" and "Kozmic Blues." Oddly enough, even though it is said that this disc contains the complete Woodstock performance, her vocal is edited out on "Can't Turn You Loose." Janis' voice gives out on her a few times in the remainder of the concert, most noticeably in "Work Me, Lord," even so, it is an absolutely amazing vocal, and quite unlike any other version she sang before or since. Her final encore, "Ball And Chain" starts off brilliantly, but Janis is so wasted by the end of the concert, that she seems to be struggling to keep it together at the end. This performance shows what a brilliant talent she possessed. She isn't operating at full capacity here, but still infuses her performance with more passion than anyone else on the bill. Janis was a true original. It would serve her memory well if Sony would release her performances from the Festival Express in their entirety.

Whole missing section from the album. 28 July 2009
By D. C. Ditommaso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On the track "I can't Turn you loose" This is the one track that features Snooky flower doing his Reddingesque performance away from playing his Barritone Sax. There's a whole part where Janis duets with him on this same track, but unfortunately it has been deleted from this so-called complete recording. If you don't believe me go to your local vhs store (if you can still find one) and rent "Janis". you will then see and hear the missing section of the song that was graciously removed. I wonder what other parts have been deleted. The rest of the album is great along with the album "Igot dem ol Kozmic blues again mama".

Quit raping the customer 23 Oct. 2010
By Mark Schlesinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Janis sounds fine here, the blues is not about slick polished music like the crap on the charts. Band is funky but a little weak-Joplin never had a band commensarate with her talents- and certainly not on a level with Sly or the James Brown or Funkadelic units. Musically and sonically, this deserves four stars. I'm downgrading the package due to the obscene habits of the record companies. Can't they find a better way to squeeze a buck from their classics than to make fans pay repeatedly for the SAME STUFF. I mean would it have been too much to ask for Columbia/Sony to package the Woodstock concerts (Winter, Santana, etc.) in a less expensive form, without forcing another copy of the original 20-something minute LP? At least this packaging is better than a 3 or 4 disc box with a couple of rarities, but...
